Welcome to The Folly – Music, Comedy and Culture Festival 2019!

We are very excited to be in the throws of organising this years event. We had a super weekend in 2018 and we are working hard to ensure it’s even bigger and better this year. We don’t have our music and comedy acts finalised just yet but will very soon and look forward to launching the line-up.

We already have some new events added to this year’s festival and will continue to update the website and our social media as more events are confirmed.  The Folly really is a family friendly festival which has something for all ages so be sure to check back regularly to see what we have added to the programme of events.

Meanwhile check out the video below, for some wonderful memories from from The Folly Festival, 2018!

The Folly is the first gender balanced festival in Ireland.

What is a gender balanced festival?  Very simply it is a festival with equal numbers of male and female performers. Throughout the entertainment industry male artists outnumber female artists 5:1 and the ratio is the same throughout production roles.  The Folly is the first festival in Ireland which actively promotes gender balance and selects act accordingly.
